deyholla (12307) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 18, 2017
Half Pint at Oddfellows. Pours a clear deep amber with a tan head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has lots of bread with straw and grains supporting. Flavor has a combination of bread and semi dark grains with straw underlying.

A rather nice gust Ale at the local 'Spoons. Very nice, if a little under chilled for my taste. Nice flavours toffee, vanilla, etc malty but not overly bitter. Nice longlasting white head. Recommended

Itstasty (113) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2017

3.7
BlueZi (2) - Exeter, Devon, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2017 does not count
Deep, dark ruby colour. Thin but rich and creamy off-white head. Heavy lacing coats the glass. Subdued aroma reveals little. Taste rich with malt, tangy bitterness, heavy profile of stewed fruit, toffee, chocolate, wood fire, first sweet then moderately bitter for an overall balanced character. Luxuriously thick body but surprisingly quick finish making this a very moreish pint. A good strong bitter that warms the veins but it could be said there is too much going on to fully appreciate, at least to this neophyte.
